Dream 2014/12/4

I have a pretty good inkling on where my subconscious drew inspiration for those strange weapon names. Firstly, I believe the spark came from a repeated phrase in "A Song of Ice and Fire":
All the best swords have names.
Going further back, the best swords from "The Lord of the Rings" also had names, e.g. Glamdring, Orcrist, Sting. Finally, let's not forget just how badass names can be in the Halo universe.

Prequel Dream to Dream 2014/12/4

So first, the prequel dream. No date on it because I can't remember when I had it. I am amazed I didn't write it down and/or post it the day after. And now I'm paying for that mistake. I have forgotten some major details by now, I tell you. Actually the forgetting was a bit useful in a way because that's what made me think about it again, which in turn prompted me to have a related dream that night and to make this post now. Silver linings, I 'spose?

Battlestation Components (5)

Got the SSD. Black Friday 2014 was NOT, I repeat, was NOT DiGiorno because it delivered. Sandisk Ultra II 240GB for $75. That's ~31¢/GB. Noice! Apologies for delaying the report on this, it's been a week since this all went down. Of course, I used Amazon Prime so I've also had the package for a few days now, too. With this, I have all the components ready.
